Recent progress on the design and fabrication of the RFCC (RF and Coupling Coil) module for the international MICE (Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment) will be reported. The MICE ionization cooling channel has two RFCC modules; each having four 201-MHz normal conducting RF cavities surrounded by one superconducting coupling coil (solenoid) magnet. The magnet is designed to be cooled by 3 cryocoolers. Fabrication of the RF cavities is complete; preparation for the cavity electro-polishing, low power RF measurements and tuning are in progress at LBNL. Fabrication of the cold mass of the first coupling coil magnet has been completed in China and the cold mass arrived at LBNL in late 2011. Preparations for testing the cold mass are currently under way at Fermilab. Plans for the RFCC module assembly and integration are being developed and will be described.
